Getting ready to shop for new tires and wheels for my 56 pick up. Would like to see what others are running and maybe get some inspiration. Please post pictures of your tires and wheels.

Looks nice ! Maybe I should be more specific in my request. What I am looking for are pictures of other 55 through 57 chevy pick up trucks. To get inspirational ideas of tire and wheel combinations as well as over all stance and so forth. I am currently in the process of setting up new front and rear suspension in my 56 truck and part if this process is making choices of tire and wheels. Normally this is a no brainer for me since I am old school all the way, but I have decided to bend a little and go with a 17 or 18 inch wheel with this new stance the truck is going to have. The bigger wheel and tire and lower stance is a little out of my normal comfort zone of experience. The truck will be lowered, but not completely on the ground and it will still be a little lower in the front than the rear. You cant take all the old school out of an old hot rodder. In other words I will bend but I wont break ! No 20 inch plus wheels and rubber ban size tires and no draggin the ground stance for my ride.

Here's mine. I like the old school look myself, even when they're lowered. Mine is lowered about 2" in the front from the stock height, as it was when I bought it. Cooper cobra tires. 15" corvette wheels with spinner caps from Summit racing and red center emblems from Roland at Rods and Rides in Fairmount, Ga. I'm actually thinking about going with bigger wheels eventually, so I will be looking at this thread to get ideas too.

I don't have anything fancy on my 56, but this is what I'm running. the tires are 235's on the rear and 215's on the front. Just baby moons and trim rings. I'll be looking at your replys in the future when it's time for me to buy new wheels.
